New Rochelle. . . ,' Here is an article telling of a national poll and naming the former Barbara Dean as one of the ten best-dressed women in the country. . .on this page I see a full page color advertisement for shampoo "just right for 'strawberry blondesu' modelled for by the former Dolly Sharp, now known as Chicago Cassie .... On these pages I see portraits of well- known socialites: the former Barbara Turner, wife of a "promising Congressman who is ably following in his father's footsteps"g the former Cynthia Austin, "gracious Southern lady entertaining at her sumptuous tobacco plantationng actress Janet McIvor of the Broadway hit 'Aye, I.assie,' and Sally Humason who is " wintering as usual in Sarasota." 'SNow I see a narrow passage of water and among the meads by its bank, keeping up the choir tradition, I hear the former Jane Brown singing "low bridge. . .on the Erie Canalv CErie, that isj. I see red: crimson permeates my crystal. It is clearing and I see the Harvard Campus and Sue Robbins, now lI13.I'I'I6ll to a Harvard professor. She is pouring tea in her Cambridge home for her visitor, Gerry Treadway, now grey haired and bespectacled from her years of study for her Ph.D. in Philosophy at Harvard and writing articles for Time in her spare hours. They are talking about Ann Clemens, Congresswoman from lVisconsin, who has been making the headlines lately by delivering stirring speeches in Washington on the merits of her state, and of their plans to hear Janice Cole at Symphony Hall that night in the premiere performance of her violin concerto. On the way to the concert I see them go into a smart dress shop owned and managed by Joan Karelitz, where they run into Emily Gierasch who has come into Boston to buy a dress suitable for the Faculty Tea she is having at her home in Andover the following week. Expected to be present are Chris von Gocben, new head of the IWath department at Phillips, Alden Obering, now head of the Spanish department at Abbot, and Helen Dowd, wife of the headmaster. "The scene changes to the Vermont countryside, Putney to be exact, where I see Jo Campbell and Bfargot lfeyer, who is visiting her from Burlington, lumbering along in a truck on their way to help Nancy Hamilton harvest her fruit. En route they come upon a bus from Peckls Transportation Service. The owner alights proudly displaying a new medal for defeating Barney Oldfield. "N ow the skyscrapers of N. Y. C. are taking place in my crystal. In the merging traffic we discern a careening cab, at the wheel of which is recognized Ann 'lNIac' Chandler, coon- skin cap pulled low over her eyes, incognito, studying life, as background for her next great epic poem. In the back seat we see "life " in the form of B. A. IN'Iitchell and escort. Seemingly blinded by the hat, 'Mac' barely misses a ladder leaning against the Four Roses Advertise- ment. On the uppermost rung I distinguish Donna Kinneman calling across to Lo White perched similarly on the Camels sign opposite. "La . . I did not know they were attached so firml .U XAround the corner on Broadway they whiz under the marquee where Nancy Brum- backis name is prominently displayed in lights. "Pulling up to the curb is a huge limousine, and I see the former Pat Jaffer and Nlary Emery disdainfully regarding the N. Y. plebeians as they gingerly make their way to "Tuck- eris Q1 " whose motto in gilded letters greets them at the door. . . " Well kids, you may think you're sophisticated, but .... H They gaze through a haze of smoke and see lNIouse hlorse Carmichael at the piano accompanying the sultry rendition of Sylvia Lyford's "Kerry Dancef, Dining at a nearby table, I see the up-and-coming journalist, Jean Ritchey, awaiting an interview with the world travelers, Carolyn Sackett and lXIillie Kreis, recently returned from Europe. They bring news of Virginia Eason, recently married to an Indian, Dartmouth variety, and converting the heathens of Oklahoma. The smoke clears and in a corner table We see Jean lNIarsh, Mackie Hall, and Nancy Barnard. Jean regales Mackie and Nancy with tales of Marblehead where she has been spending all her spare time. Mackie is buying her trousseau, and having a last fling before settling down to married life, while Barnard fills in the lurid details of her permanent romance." "Now I see a blank and then a book slowly appearing. It is grasped by two well kept hands. The book is "The Lost Wveek-end U avidly perused by our own N.J.S.,, Un these Words the meeting is adjourned. Q" P.S. I see Ann Aulis, Carolyn Sackett, Helen Dowd, Jean hIarsh, Diane Gould, Jane Brown, Edith Flather, Nancy Scripture, and llary Emery voted nine of the ten most beautiful women in tl1e world: Lena the Hyena being the tenth."j l37l
